Greece – Ancient Civilization and Amazing Landscapes

Greece is ancient sun-bleached ruins piercing blue skies, the balmy Aegean lapping an endless coastline and a culture alive with passionate music, wonderful cuisine and thrill-seeking activities.

Really beloved by people, Greece is so rich in culture and beauty that it never seems to be completely explored, no matter how many times you visit it.

Greece is a mountainous peninsula located on the eastern side of the Mediterranean Sea. With a total area of 130.800 km2, the country is surrounded by sea from three sides. The northern side borders with other Balkan countries. Due to the many islands, in the Aegean and the Ionian Sea, Greece has the longest coastline in Europe and the fifth longest coastline in the world. The country has a population of about 11 million, with 4 million living in Athens, the country's capital. The largest cities after Athens are Thessaloniki and Patras.

Greece is a country with a very rich history and the homeland of many famous personalities throughout the centuries. In general, the Greeks are particularly proud of their culture and speak of their country with an intense passion, feeling that the culture in Greece is a definition of their national and ethnic belonging. Traditions, religion, music, language, food, and wines are the major composites of the culture in Greece and constitute the base for those who wish to visit and understand today's country.
